California Bicycle Festival... December 6th!

This was in Bicycle Retailer and Industry this morning. It appears that the major groups behind it is AEG, which has something to do with that one small race in California...

Man... what is that race called again? Oh well... I can't seem to put my finger on it. Anyway, Bicycle Retailer and Industry wrote this whole long article about the event, which I'm just going here because it's late and I'm tired.

VENTURA, CA (BRAIN)—The California Bikefest is being held on Saturday, December 6 at the Crowne Plaza in Ventura Beach. California Bikefest features activities, education, exhibitors, organized rides and racing for the four areas of bicycle culture: Bicycle transportation and commuting, casual cycling, bicycle tourism and competitive cycling. California Bikefest will be held at the Ventura Beach Boardwalk, on the shores of the Pacific Ocean. California Bikefest has also recently partnered with AEG Cycling and the Amgen Tour of California. Portions of the proceeds from this event will benefit Breakaway from Cancer—a national initiative created by Amgen to increase awareness of the important access to resources available to cancer patients throughout the cycle of cancer care from prevention to education, and patient care to advocacy and financial support.

The exhibit area will be open from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. This venue gives the exhibitors the opportunity to showcase their products and services to the general public during a unique event which does not currently exist in Southern California.

This event is free and open to the public. The Ventura Convention and Visitors bureau is actively marketing this event throughout Southern and Northern California, Oregon, Nevada, Washington and Utah. They have also partnered with Amtrak to promote and support transportation to the event—the Amtrak Pacific "Surfliner" stop for Ventura is a quarter-mile away at the Ventura County Fairgrounds.

Exhibitors will receive booth space starting at $100 with a matching $100 donation to the Breakaway from Cancer Initiative. Additional information, including booth pricing and exhibitor registration instructions are located on the Web site at, under the Expo area.

Please visit the Web site at and review all the events and exhibitor details. Contact to answer and questions or confirm your participation
See you there!

Definitely looks like something worth seeing if you've got an interest in bike advocacy. And it's not nearly as fucked up a place as Vegas. I like.
